I can't believe we're more than a year into the pandemic and people are still trying to force zoom hangouts with people they didn't hang out with before the pandemic. 🙄

As someone that does regularly invite coworkers to come hangout (virtually or in person) my viewpoint is just about being inclusive and inviting everyone rather than risking someone feeling left out during these times of covid, if they weren't invited. Many just ignore the invites but nobody has ever asked me to stop inviting them... so my question is, if you strongly dont want to spend time with them, have you asked them to stop inviting you? Communication is key and they won't know unless you tell them you're not interested... just like the door-knocking mormons.
